Calendar, August 1970
The exploded dot pattern of this calendar exposes the techniques of halftone printing, in which microscopic dots of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black vary in size and spacing to create subtle shifts in color and tone. Here enlarged, the dots allow the eye to see both the abstract pattern and the image of a fruit.
